Paris finds new coach in Weaver
"I couldn’t resist the challenge of coaching Paris Basketball in its first season in the 7DAYS EuroCup," Coach Weaver said after the agreement. "Competing will require our young team to be innovative, bold, and patient – principles I hold dear. My family and I have been privileged to live and work in world capitals like New York and Sydney, but there is nowhere like Paris."
